My Story and Services

About Me

Frann Ziskin, CFP, CIMA, Vice President, Financial Advisor

Enabling clients to have options about their financial futures is the cornerstone on which I’ve built my practice. Whether I’m helping families invest for their children’s education, assisting women professionals plan for retirement, or advising local entrepreneurs on how to grow their businesses, I am dedicated to helping my clients achieve their goals. My mission is to empower them to be confident in their financial decisions through education and understanding, so they can have options for their future, not obligations.

Since joining Morgan Stanley in 1996, I have focused on building long-standing relationships with my clients. They have come to appreciate my respectful and approachable style to help them make well-informed decisions, and to maintain the discipline necessary to navigate the most challenging of markets.

Throughout my career, I have been committed to advanced learning. I earned the Certified Financial Planning designation, which focuses on the financial planning process, risk management, investments, tax planning, retirement and estate planning. I also received the Certified Investment Management Analyst certification, which focuses on asset allocation, ethics, due diligence, risk management policy and performance management. These designations provide me with the skills needed to assist my clients in today’s complex financial world.

I’m a graduate of the State University of New York at Buffalo, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in history. I currently reside in Port Washington, New York with my husband, Steven. When I’m not assisting clients, I enjoy reading, tutoring, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
